Abbot Kinney Blvd.
Venice, CA, 90921, United States

The epicenter of boho-chic in Venice Beach, this one-mile boulevard is a colorful collage of independent boutiques, art galleries, vintage shops, and sidewalk cafes. Abbot Kinney is also one of LA’s few walkable streets, inviting visitors to take a stroll on a sunny afternoon, ducking into the G2 Gallery to see the latest exhibit before splurging on gorgeous Kendall Conrad handbags in her namesake boutique, and then stopping for sweet treats from N’IceCream. Events are forever popping up along the boulevard, as well, from wine tastings and fashion nights to the annual Abbot Kinney Festival.

Insider Tip:

Primetime on the boulevard is the first Friday of every month, when visiting food trucks fill the boulevard, and the galleries stay open late for exploration.
